Seafarer's Centre by ARK-House Architects

The Finnish based practice ARK-house Architects recently realised the new building for the Seafarer’ Centre close to the main entrance to the Helsinki’s Vuosaari harbour. With its organic shape and the use of mailny natural materials it forms a strong contrast to the crushing hectare-sized steel warehouses, and the artificial landscape of tarmac fields and container seas which dominates the area. As the only public building in the area, its role is to serve as a place of respite; a small multipurpose building for the seamen that arrive at the harbour form afar.
